Silk Qum ‘Souf’

Description

This breathtaking Silk Qum was woven in the 50s in the so-called ‘Souf’ technique which consists in cutting back the pile of the ground to the point where the design stands out in relief creating a 3D carved effect when touching the piece.

The rug displays a ‘Zir-e Khaki’ design. Zir-e Khaki literally means “under the ground” and is referred to Persian archeological finds. In fact, the design includes historical finds found underground as vases, swards, and pitchers. The piece is in excellent condition for its age.
